As a parent, do you find yourself asking these questions?
When should my child point to objects?
Should I be concerned if my child has difficulty playing with other children?
When should my child use words to communicate?
When should my child feed him or herself?
When should I discipline my child?
My name is Stacy Sidey. I am an experienced, nationally certified and state licensed Speech and Language Pathologist offering speech and language therapy service for parents who are seeking support with early childhood development. I earned my Certificate in Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in 1984, Master's degrees in Communication Disorders and Special Education, and hold certifications in numerous Hanen Programs. My life credentials include Community College, Learning Handicapped and Multiple Subject. Throughout my career, I worked as a Speech and Language Pathologist for both the Amador County Office of Education and Progressus Therapy.
My specialization is to provide high quality early intervention to assist families of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. In my career, I have provided speech and language services for children birth through 21 years since 1982. These services included assessment, therapy, collaboration, and documentation for children. In my pediatric specialization, I provided parents with specific activities to support their families. My therapy has been provided in homes, schools, and clinics.
I am a wife and mother of three sons. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, traveling, and staying active doing pilates and yoga.
